Welcome to Tesco Wine by the case.
We hope you enjoy your visit.
Very complex spicy nose.
Sweet cedary aromatic from the whisper (25%
) of new oak mingled with a hint of licorice.
Plump mid palate with rounded tannins, this is another Popes to keep and allow to hit its straps fully a little ways down the track.
This wine can be drunk now but will further improve if carefully stored for up to 8 years
Charles Melton Wines has produced premium Barossa red wines since 1984. At that time, Charlie and a small band of Barossa winemakers turned their winemaking efforts to what were then considered a couple of unfashionable varieties: Shiraz and Grenache. These wines were initially styled on those from the Rhône but are now considered leading examples of the varieties in their own right.
Barossa Valley in South Australia is considered one of the country’s best areas for producing premium red wines, which have become an Australian classic in their own rights, thanks to the wines produced there by the likes of Charles Melton. The Grenache fruit in this blend comes principally from old dry grown bush vines, the Barossa being one of the last areas that contains such a rich resource. The Shiraz and Mourvèdre are a mix of trellis grown and bush vines of similar age.
